Please mention you found us on: findpetboarding.com
Home boarding for small mammals and birds in Croydon. There are no cats, dogs or ferrets so your pet will have calm and safe stay. We have our own small pets (four gerbils and a hamster) and experience with other species too.
We specialise in the smaller rodents because we know they have their own individual needs and issues. We are particularly experienced with gerbils and hamsters, and are happy to give advice on their care where we can.
We take indoor birds, hamsters, gerbils, mice, rats, degus and other small mammals. We do not currently board rabbits and guinea pigs.
Regular photo updates can be provided during your pet's stay if you request this during booking, or you can email me at any time for an update.
Your pet can be accommodated in their own cage, or cages are available for hire for some species if your own cage is not portable.
While you will need to provide your pet's dry food, seed or pellets, fresh food and hay can be provided if your pet usually eats it.
Handling and exercise can be provided during your pet's stay. I always try to stick to the handling and exercise routine your pet is used to, whether that be daily exercise, or a more hands-off approach.
Smaller rodents such as gerbils and hamsters are exercised in a run and rats may have free roam in one room.
If your pet is unwell or injured during their stay veterinary care will be provided. Any fees will be payable by you on collection of your pet.
Your pet's cage will be spot cleaned (obvious dirty or wet areas cleaned) during their stay, and if necessary a full clean will be done. For small mammals we usually use Fitch, which is a low dust paper bedding. You are welcome to provide your own bedding if your pet is used to something different.
Hamsters, gerbils, mice: £2 per night per cage. This includes bedding, and fresh food if your pet usually eats it. You will need to provide your pet's dry food, their bathing/litter sand and any special treats they like.
Rats: £4 per night per cage.
This includes bedding and fresh food if your rats usually eat it. You will need to provide your rats' dry food and any special treats.
All birds: £5 per night per cage. This includes fresh food if your bird usually eats it and newspaper for cage cleans. You will need to provide your pet's seed mix or dry food, and any other necessary items such as sand and water supplements.
All other species: Enquire for prices
